    I just wanted to reach out and see if others are having the same issues. Of late (past 3-4 months), we have noticed that when we get to a supercharging station, and plug in, frequently the LED ring turns red. It would often take 4-5 tries in the same bay before it would turn green. Also noticed that at times it would charge anywhere from 50-70A.

    Wondering if this is an issue with my car or is it a problem with the supercharger systems not been maintained that's causing the charging irregularities. Thank you.

    Wife complained to me about it, but not big enough an issue to bring up.
